Sarah Palin, the Republican politician who may go head-to-head with Barack Obama at the next presidential election, has taken aim at the current First Lady Michelle Obama during an episode of her reality show 'Sarah Palin's Alaska', reports US Magazine.
On Sunday's episode (19th December 2010), the former Governor of Alaska was seen searching around in her kitchen cupboards for more ingredients as her youngest son Trig looked on. The 46-year-old then turned to the camera and said, "This is in honour of Michelle Obama, who thinks nobody in the land should have dessert". The jibe was in reference to the First Lady's 'Lets Move' campaign which attempts to tackle the United States' problem with childhood obesity, instead focusing attention on healthier foods and exercise. In a recent speech made in Kansas City, Obama said, "In my house...we ate what we were served. We ate what was there, or we didn't eat, and there was always a vegetable on the plate".
Palin's reality show has come in for heavy criticism in recent weeks. Aaron Sorkin, the creator of hit political drama 'The West Wing', accused the former governor of killing an innocent animal for political gain after she was filmed hunting for caribou.
